Independent Living Reviews for The Woods at Holly Tree

I visited this facility

I liked the fact that once you are in The Woods at Holly Tree, supposedly you do not have to leave. If you need assistance, assistance can be brought to the residents. The staff was very helpful and very nice. The dining area and the rooms seemed very nice. The more you pay, the bigger you are going to get. But their prices change quite often, so when we could have afforded it, my mom wasn’t able to move in right away, and they went up quite a lot. I did eat there, and the food was very good.

Everything was fine at The Woods at Holly Tree except the location. It was not very accessible, and everything was a little busier. We had a short visit but very nice. The facility was fine, and the staff was very nice.

I took a tour at The Woods at Holly Tree. I saw their rooms and their dining facilities. If it is associated with the Holiday Resorts, it’s a good facility. The appearance was good. It is a new facility. I guess the chef there has a bunch of awards for the cooking that he does, which is impressive. It was more modern than the other community. The facility was newer. I like the building itself a little bit better, but it turned out that it was just a little bit farther down the road. The staff and the lady who gave me the tour were very nice. It was a topnotch facility.

The Woods at Holly Tree was nice. Everything was nice. It was an older facility, and the residents are nice. The residents were very happy there, and they said the food was good. If somebody is tight on their budget, this facility would be nice.

The Woods at Holly Tree was very nice; it just wasn’t what we were looking for because it was just a little too limited. The two-bedroom apartments were very small and did not have full kitchens, only a sink and a little refrigerator. It just wasn’t what my parents were looking for at the time. I understand there’s probably a lot of people that stay there don’t need anything more than that, but you have to furnish your own microwave if you stay there. The people were wonderful, very accommodating, very nice, very helpful, and tried very hard to answer our questions.

Mom has a one bedroom apartment which is a bedroom, living area and kitchenette, approximately 450 sq ft. In this area such an apartment with utilities could be rented for about $650-750 mo. In 3 yrs the rates have increased from 3200 up to 3700/mo. The food is good but not great, and activities are limited to some game nights, wii bowling, or an occasional guest entertainment such as volunteer singing groups, and I don't feel like the cost is justified. I am also very concerned that a large portion of the residents are mobility impaired, using walkers and canes, and there is only one elevator serving over a hundred apartments, raising serious safety concerns if an evacuation is necessary. On the plus side, the managers are helpful and caring, and the facility is well kept. We are looking for another facility in the area, but the fees are suspiciously similar, and there doesn't seem to be much competition. I would like for her to live with me, but she doesn't want to leave her friends. So in spite of the fact that she has spent over $100,000 plus phone/internet fees in the 3 years she has been there, I guess we're stuck.
Provider Response

Hi, I'm Katie, I work at Holiday Retirement's Home Office. I'm sorry to hear that you don't feel as if your mom is receiving a valuable senior living experience at The Woods at Hollytree. We understand that the face of senior living is changing and we need to adapt to those changes, so I sent your feedback on to our Resident Relations department for their review. I also sent your review to our safety director here at Home Office. We take safety very seriously here at Holiday and don't ever want you to have to worry about your mom's safety being compromised. If you have any specific suggestions on how we can offer better services to your mom (i.e. activities you'd like to see her involved in) you can call them as well at 1-800-370-8331. Thanks for your honest feedback and we hope to hear from you soon, Katie

The Woods was cheery, very clean, with a lot of activities going on. It was a larger facility, and it was nice. Not only their administration people, but their nursing people and physical therapy people were wonderful and willing to work with my mom's needs and help her. I had lunch there, and they were wonderful.

The Woods at Holly Tree was nice. They showed us two apartments. The one looked okay and the other one my wife didn't like at all because there was no stove in there. The food was okay. It was kind of homey. The people were friendly and the staff was nice.

The Woods of Holly Tree was absolutely beautiful. Everything was just perfect. The people were very welcoming, we liked the services that they're going to provide. The residents themselves always had a smile on their faces. The rooms were clean and spacious. It meets mom's needs at the time. Mom actually signed the contract, but then changed her mind and decided to stay home.

Nice facility, poor management. Housekeepers are expected to clean the rooms and serve all the meals (the room cleanliness suffers). Food is good and the common areas are dated but somewhat maintained. Would not have been my first choice but it was located near me.
